The Association of Advanced Ceramics Manufacturers (Syndicat des Industriels des Céramiques Techniques – SICT)

The association brings together and represents manufacturers of high-tech ceramics.It provides a setting in which the various actors can work to promote this material in a climate of cooperation and consensus.

Ceramics : essential materials

Advanced ceramics hold a special place among the new materials; they provide adapted solutions where metals and polymers cannot be used.

Present in all fields

Highly refractory, with melting points above 2,000°C, resistant to wear and corrosion, insulating or semiconducting, very solid in compression, low-density – ceramics have qualities that meet very specific needs.

All the cutting-edge areas of technology, which are so demanding, utilize advanced ceramics.
